31 WEDDING DRESSES FOR SMALL BUSTS
One important factor to consider when shopping for a wedding dress with a small bust is neckline. V-necklines is a great option for small busts, as they create the illusion of more volume and can balance out the proportions of your figure. Avoid high necklines, which can make your bust appear even smaller. A deep V-neck can also draw the eye downward and create the illusion of a fuller bust.

Empire waist dresses can be a good option for those with small busts because the high waistline can create the illusion of a longer torso and a more balanced silhouette. Empire waist dresses have a high waistline that falls just below the bust, and the bodice is often fitted with a more relaxed fit through the hips and thighs. This style of dress can be very flattering for those with small busts because it draws attention to the narrow waist and away from the bust area

5. Fiona Bridal Gown
6. Iris Corset Maxi Dress
An A-line dress is a type of dress that is fitted at the bust and waist and then flares out into an A-shaped silhouette. The A-shape of the dress typically begins at the waist and extends out to the hem, creating a triangular shape that is wider at the bottom than at the top. They are known for their flattering fit and can create the illusion of a fuller bust.

8. Aurora gown
9. Dylan A-Line Gown
Off-the-shoulder dresses can be a good option for those with small busts because they draw attention away from the bust area and towards the shoulders and neckline. This can create the illusion of more balanced proportions and can make the bust appear larger. Off-the-shoulder dresses also tend to be very feminine and romantic, which can be a flattering look for those with small busts.

Ruched dresses can be a good option for those with small busts because the gathered fabric can create the illusion of more volume in the bust area. Ruching, which is the process of gathering or pleating fabric in a decorative way, can add texture and dimension to a dress, making it more visually interesting and drawing the eye to the gathered fabric rather than the bust area. This Seraphina wedding dress from Galia Lahav’s Fall 2021 Couture Bridal Collection is a perfect example of a ruched wedding dress.

Strapless corset dresses can be a good option for those with small busts because the corset top can create the illusion of a larger bust. Corset tops are structured garments that are fitted and often have boning or other support built in to shape and lift the bust. When worn in a strapless style, they can provide support and enhance the appearance of the bust without covering up the shoulders or neckline. Strapless corset dresses are often very feminine and flattering, and they can be found in a variety of styles

One-shoulder wedding dresses are a popular choice for brides with small busts because they help to create the illusion of a more balanced and proportional figure. The asymmetrical neckline of a one-shoulder dress draws attention upwards towards the face and shoulders, which can help to balance out a smaller bust. Additionally, the one-shoulder design can help to elongate the torso, creating the illusion of a taller and slimmer silhouette.
